Cedar Plugs and the old red head/white body diving plug work great as "grocery getters." The problem we had was that with only 2 people on boat it's kind of a sin to kill a 30-lb tuna, cause there's just no way in hell you're gonna be able to eat it all, even with refrigeration.

Someone mentioned fishing lures for the open sea. We are not anglers nor sportsmen. For us it's about meat fishing, not playing with the creature for hours. We bought a lure, lost it to a barracuda the first day out, realized it had cost three times more than a can of tuna. We got a meat hook, 80-pound test line and baited hooks with strips of yellow cloth torn from an old sheet or with clear plastic tubes cut in strips. Tied it to a stanchion. Drove the mahi-mahi crazy, cost nothing, ate well, canned the leftovers.

"canned the leftovers. "
Pressure cooker & ball jars? How long do you have to cook fish when you "can" it, and does it stay firm rather than fall apart? In sauce or its own broth?

Yes, Janet, thats a bit far fetched to be canning at sea.

I find fishing a damn waste of fish. Without a freezer the 2 of us could never eat a whole palagic fish.

Last one we caught was in the Med a beautiful, endangered, blue fin tuna.
Killed the poor bastard and ate about 1/8th of it.

I don't fish no more.

The rapists of the oceans - the tuna fishermen - at least serve it up in meal size cans.

You aren't using steel leader wire, are you? Fiber is great for lines, but steel leaders are how you make it harder for the fish to take your lures home.

Mark, could you salt it and dry it to put up the fish? Or pickle it, like herring and ceviche?

That's what I was thinking. Mason jars and vinegar or lemon lime juice.

I canned some tuna coming back across to europe last summer. From memory it was already cooked so I think it was 30 mins in pressure cooker covered in extra virgin olive oil with some garlic and kaffir lime leaves. Open it a few weeks ago, absolutely delicious, still firm but not dry like the tinned stuff. Only had one bottle with the little dimple on the sealed lid or would have canned much more. Even fresh tuna looses it's charm when you are eating about a kilo a day for half a week.

Go on give us a clue, what are "grits" because in my country it sounds like something you put on the garden path when its snowing or covered in ice

LOL..... first time I saw it (Grits) was in New Bern, NC at a breakfast bar...
Lady asked me what I wanted so I said... "Bacon, sausage, egg, potato's and mushrooms.." she then asked if I'd like 'Grits and Biscuits'... I asked what grits were and she went away and came back with what looked like a small bowl of Baby Puke.... I passed on the 'Puke'.... but went with the Biscuits which are like light fluffy Scones...
Another thing... their sausage are mini burgers... if you want proper sausages you gotta ask for 'Links'.....
